Question about Ricoh CL4000DN Laser Printer

Prints a couple of pages - then jams

My Ricoh has been printing with no problems until just about a week or so ago. It will print a few pages and then jam. I have to open the front cover and take out the piece of paper - then it prints a page or two and jams. I have not changed the paper I use - it's Hammermill Copy Plus. It is driving me crazy! Any suggestions out there?

Well, for now it seems to be fixed - I opened up the paper tray and there is a little part that grabs the paper on the front of the tray - kinda sticky - I just took a paper cutter and put a couple of scratches on it and it is grabbing the paper for now. I do have some of those to use for replacements - but I had just changed it about a month ago and don't think it needed to be changed out again - they usually last quite a while. So, we'll see how long this lasts. We do a lot of printing on this thing and it has been a great printer - maybe we are just wearing it out!

Aficio 1027 only print first couple of pages


Could be several things. I would start by eliminating the easiest things. Try another cable, decrease dpi settings (less memory usage), try a USB cable to see if theres a difference if a port is available. Update the print driver from Ricoh website.

Ricoh SP C410 DN jam from bypass


If you can take off the bypass unit, two screws and a harness, you may be able to check the shaft, bushings and rollers. Sometimes removing jammed paper cause parts to get out of normal position. The grinding noise for example, gears not meshing together correctly. If it worked before the jam, then that is where I would look.

Try opening the printer and checking for a paper jam.
It's also worth removing the toner cartridge and placing it back again, therefore forcing the printer to go through the diagnostic cycle again. Sometimes that solves the issue.
Hope that helps!

Print function is not working properly. I have a Ricoh Afcicio 1013F. It prints a few pages then has an error msg.


Does the machine copy okay? If you copy several pages, do they all come out normally, or do you get an error message like when you print?

What is the error message that shows up? If the machine prints a few pages before the error comes up, and it works fine when you are copying, the problem is likely either with your network or with the application you are trying to print from. Depending on what the error message says, it will help to isolate the problem.

It could also be the print driver itself. You can go to Ricoh-USA.com to the Downloads section and either update or reinstall the print driver if nothing else works.

Incomplete copying/printing. Full page not copying, just 3/4 of the page, whether b/w or colour. when photocopying or printing only a thrid of the text or image is printed.


Check wether the transfer belt cleaning unit inside the photoconductor unit have wrong cleaning cycle due to the defective cleaning clutch.
